    Just a simple noob question on how to do this. I have googled, and it seems straight forward, but I'll ask anyway.

    IF I have an original store purchased game, is it as simple as uising imgburn to backup the game, and burning and booting with modchip/softmod/swap magic?

    Thanks in advance

    I remember using Alcohol 120% to get a PS2 ISO to test PS2 emulation on my PC, so you can get the ISO.
    Not sure about burning and booting as I don't own a PS2.

    by get the iso do you mean you made it using alcohol, like "create image" option or something? How long did it take to rip the game? I knowI can download the backups, but I'm more interested in ripping store bought games

    DVD Decrypter in ISO mode did it fine when I did it a while back if I recall correctly.

    DVDDecrypter and IMGBurn are both fine, free methods to rip PS2 discs.

    Do new games have ANY kind of copy protection? I remeber a few years ago you could copy all ps2 games with every software that is able to create copies(Nero, Alcohol, ImgBurn ...).

    Look at the flag
    The only thing close to that that I can think of is DNAS, but you only need that to play online. Besides, there's a patching program that can fake it somehow. I haven't used it.
